“Frankfurt through the lens – review” is a 4-hour workshop, for those, interested in learning how to judge one's own pictures and use them effectively. It is about image selection, the creation of series and working on a personal concept.
Together with the support of the professional photo editor Nils Thies, you will explore your own imagery and at the same time, take over the position of the observer, when analysing the photographs of others, regardless of whether for magazines, websites or portfolios.
Participants of the “Frankfurt through the lens” workshops are as welcome, as curious newcomers. Needed are 10–20 photographs of a series, which are important to you in printed form.
